Stonewalls steeped in history
Take part in a guided tour of the former monastery grounds and afterwards let the restaurant team spoil you.
Renovation works on the charterhouse in Gaming started in 1984. Today, the former monastery is a centre of cultural life with an ambience that is both historical and modern complete with hotel, restaurant and private brewery.
Inaugurated in 1342, the Gaming Charterhouse is the largest charterhouse in the whole of Central Europe and one of the richest monasteries in the country. Today, the renovated premises accommodate a four-star hotel, an event venue, a restaurant and an in-house brewery as well as several university institutes. The atmospheric Easter and Christmas markets are annual highlights.
Guided tours (in German) of the Gaming Charterhouse take place daily at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. between the beginning of May and the end of October. Guided group tours are possible by appointment. All yards and the most important rooms and premises like church, baroque library, prelates’ hall and museum are part of the tour.
